Good Morning!!!

Today is Wednesday so guess what that means....Yes, it is Flutter By Wednesday!!! Each Wednesday Danni and the Flutter By team have a new challenge for you. This week is a fun one, not only because it is my first time to play as a Flutter By Team member but because of the challenge itself. This week's challenge is to create a card with butterflies or a fairy (and just for clarification we decided any person with wings can qualify as a fairy because it is to hard to judge some of the fairies out there) plus use punches or die cuts on your creation!!! There are so many new punches and die cuts out there! The sky is the limit on this challenge!!

For my creation, I decided to go with butterflies as my theme. Since time is limited and I so love challenges, I incorporated several other challenges into my creation as well including:

-Flutter by Wednesday to use butterflies or fairies plus use a punch or diecut on your card. I used several of my favorites!

- CC213 (bashful blue, so saffron, and close to cocoa)

- ssnotime82 (hang it up, have a tag or charm hanging on your card) I have a flower hanging from one of my butterflies

- FTTC11 (Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge hosted by my ODBD DT sister, Becca) to have piercing on your card. I used my ornare to pierce in the corners.

-TLC216 to stamp on metal ( I punched out my MS butterflies and colored and embossed them)

I am so sorry the photo is so dark. It has been nothing but cloudy here and I just had a really hard time getting the right lighting. Anywho onto my creation.....

The background image is from the SU Freshcuts stampset. I stamped in Timber Brown stazon then added some so saffron and close to cocoa vines. Some of the flowers were colored with crayon (crayon resist) and I sponged bashful blue over top. The butterflies are punched out of a soda can, embossed with the swiss dot cuttlebug folder, stamped with Bashful Blue, and glittered. The flowers are punched out of dp using a Fresh Flower punch from SU. The frame is a recessed frame using my newest dies that I just received- Labels Four!!! I love the shape. The shape of the card is also made using a nesties die (mega curved rectangle). The dp is SU Apricot appeal for the background and a scrap of Parisian Summer for the frame.

Thanks for taking the time to visit me today. I hope you enjoyed today's post. I hope you have a chance to play along with the Flutter By Wednesday challenge. Remember all you have to do is use a fairy or a butterfly on your creation plus use punches or diecuts. We would love to see your creations so enter your direct link to Mister Linky here on Danni's Blog.If you uplad your creation to SC or PCP please use the keyword FBW.

The Flutter By Wednesday Team has many creations to share so be sure to stop by and leave them some love.
